    Mountain biking on the North shore. A lot of people don't know these trails are there. I could spend hours riding around with only running into one or 2 people.

    From Redditor u/onoba:

    Check out the Hanapepe Art Night. Friday nights. There's a lady that sells pies there. (Can't remember her name, but I can't forget the pies.) They are awesome! Have a slice of mango pie for me. Have breakfast at Tip Top Diner in Lihue. Try the Loco Moco.

    Also, check out Glass Beach Cemetery around sunset.
